Cardiff sledge hockey club is a friendly local team based in Cardiff's Ice Arena Wales ice rink. Started in 96 and became one of the pioneers of sledge hockey in the UK. We currently play in the BSHA league and also enter tournaments around the world.
How Do I Play It?
Sledge hockey is a seated version of ice hockey. Each player sits in a specific made sledge and then they use two sticks with a 'hockey end' at the top and 'small teeth spikes' at the bottom, which is dug in to the ice and propel yourself around the ice.

Sledge hockey is a team sport with ability’s from beginner and recreational to paralympic levels. The club is suitable for junior & senior members with a physical disability, as there is a degree of upper body strength needed to play the sport, although everyone is welcome to come and try it out first, this also includes non-disabled participants.
